Workshop Update for May 25th, 2012

Posted on Friday, May 25th, 2012 in Workshop Update by DP

We finished responding to every email received during the Maker Faire, and wrote everyone who gave us a business card. If you were expecting a mail and didn’t get one, please followup again, it may have been lost in the shuffle.

We also debugged the RSS feed issue. FireFox uses the description field of the feed. We will hack WordPress to fix it as described here soon.

We added some components to our Eagle parts library, and made so minor silkscreen modifications to others.

The Part Ninja firmware is committed to the SVN. It is still a long way from finished, but it will recognize, and show pinout for capacitors, resistors, BJTs, JFETs, MOSFETs, SCRs, TRIAC, and all variations of double, and regular diodes. Still unimplemented is the capacitance measurement, and JFET part specific measurements. Also the resistance measurement is currently a little buggy. We will continue to work on it next week, and bring you full documentation on how the Part Ninja does it’s testing.
